Happy Monday!!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!! Today, I’m sharing a fabulous card and when I look at it, all I can think is crisscross applesauce. Who doesn’t say crisscross without applesauce following??? Unless maybe you were a big fan of the band!! Let me know in the comments if you were!
This is a simple card and a great way to use up designer series paper. Adding the stitched look to the rectangles and fun linen thread just makes it that much more special!!!
I started with a Fresh Fig card base and stamped the little flower all over in Fresh Fig Ink. The flower is from the Bloom By Bloom Stamp Set. Next, I took 2 pieces of the Floral Romance Designer Series Paper and die cut them with the Stitched Rectangle Framelits! Then, I stamped the greeting on the wooden one in Fresh Fig Ink. This greeting is from the Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set.
On the smaller rectangle, I wrapped Linen Tread down the rectangle and back again creating that fun crisscross pattern. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back side to hold it all in place and for adhering to the card. This gives a little texture too. I finished it off with a little Frosted Flower Embellishment!
For the inside of the card, I rounded 2 corners with the Detailed Trio Punch. Using that same flower from the front, I stamped a few in Petal Pink and the coordinating greeting in Fresh Fig!!! I love the little decorated inside that just makes the card look so fabulous! After all, you can’t write on Fresh Fig cardstock anyway so why not add in some more fun!
